This class was a survey class, going through some different approaches to drawing. I never felt like I improved, as we kept switching approaches. It was interesting to try things, but wasn’t helpful as someone looking for critical feedback. Good for folks looking to shake things up, not for total beginners.

This was a great starter course. Super laid back, but so informative. We had a great time and Eric was an awesome instructor.

I really enjoyed my time in this class! Erik was very patient and prepared for just about any question we threw at him. We made a solid use of the time allotted; I almost wish I brought along more materials to practice on. I highly recommend this class.

I really enjoyed this class. It was very easy going and Nathan was very personable and helpful. The class size was small so there was a lot of personal attention and assistance if needed. If there are more in depth classes, I would be very interested in signing up!

the teacher is very talented and is definitely a professional. I think it would've been helpful to have a little more individual criticism by the teacher though. she could spend a few seconds or minutes throughout each class to give individualized observations to help the student improve on their weaknesses. Overall a good class.

Amazing !! Erik was super friendly and helpful - you will learn all the fundamentals you need to create silkscreen prints at home, and you’ll walk away with a stencil you can use over and over again!
